Starting a vocational career in a new field can be a challenge, particularly if you are already on a working schedule. Fortunately, solar system training is offered online for those who may not be able to make it into a classroom. The format of this class allows individuals trying to move into the field a way of fitting learning a new trade into their spare time so that they can complete their training in just five weeks.

Course of Study for Solar Training

It might not take as much as you think to get your foot in the door for an entry-level job in the solar industry. People can do a lot with basic knowledge of photovoltaic systems. An online solar system training course will cover the essential topics of the solar power generation field as well as installation procedures:

  • Electricity and Solar Terminology
  • Solar Theory
  • Types of PV Systems
  • Solar Cell Design and Function
  • Equipment and Tools for Installation
  • Safety Procedures

Solar Installation Certification

The Refrigeration School’s Solar Power and Technology program is recognized by the North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners (NABCEP), a voluntary organization devoted to creating programs that promote renewable energy and a standard for energy technicians to follow. NABCEP offers certification to applicants who pass their Certified Solar PV Installer Exam. While having this certification is not necessary to working within the solar industry, it may help to differentiate yourself as a job applicant later on. It also demonstrates that you are dedicated to maintaining a certain standard within your own work.

Solar Installation as a Career

With emerging state and federal tax incentives as well as a pressing need to become more energy efficient, careers in solar are expected to grow six times faster than the overall job market in the coming years. Now is a great time to attend a trade school specializing in solar as this industry takes off. Large markets have already emerged overseas, and pockets of solar communities are budding across the US. The largest markets are currently in the Southwest of the country, including Arizona, New Mexico, California, Nevada, Texas, and Colorado. However, manufacture and installation of PV cells takes place all across the country, notably in Massachusetts, Ohio, and Oregon.
